Raves for Wednesday, August 14, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thank you to the young lady that paid for my 95-year-old mother’s groceries last week at Save-A-Lot. You brightened her day!

Thank you to W. G. Nunn for having their open house at night when parents can attend. I am looking forward to working with the teachers and new principal.

Thank you so very much to the person in a black Mercedes who bought our breakfast at Zacadoo’s. It was a lovely thing to do and we will pay it forward. Thank you!

Thank you to Teresa Cason for your kind words for the Valdosta State Prison staff in a recent “Letter to the Editor.” It is not often we are recognized for doing this job. Your gesture was not unnoticed.

A big rave to Smith Northview Hospital. I have been out there twice and the surgical unit has been so nice. They even call you the next day to see how you are doing and even send you a card. I rave for Smith Northview Hospital.

A big rave to Dr. Zeigler and staff at SGMC. I had to have emergency surgery and they all treated me very kindly. Thank you very, very much. You all did a great job!

A big God bless to the three young men who helped push my vehicle out of the intersection of Gornto and Baytree road on Monday during rush hour traffic. I will pay it forward. Thank you very much.

 I want everybody to know I bought some great local honey called Honey Bell Farms from Mama June’s. It has really helped with my allergies. Thanks to Honey Bell Farms for putting local honey back in the market for this area.

We decided on short notice to have Fazoli's cater a lunch for eight employees. The order taking, preparation and pick-up were flawless. The general manager has a wonderful and competent staff and we want to thank him for the great food and great service. We will definitely use Fazoli's again!

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.
